SpareBank 1 SMN : Corrected CET1 capital ratio at SpareBank 1 SMN

5/3/2018, 8:07 AM (Source: GlobeNewswire)

SpareBank 1 SMN has corrected its common equity tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio as at 31.12.2017 from 14.9 per cent to 14.6 per cent. The correction does not affect book equity capital or reported return on equity. 

The bank has brought to light incorrect treatment of its share of the fund for unrealised gains from related companies. This reduces reported CET1 capital at end-2017. A correction for the fourth quarter of 2017 is also made in the calculation of capital charges related to repurchase agreements and associated collaterals (repos). The effects relate to the transitional arrangement (Basel 1 floor). This brings an increase in risk weighted assets compared with the original reporting. 

As a result of these factors, the CET1 capital ratio is revised from 14.9 per cent to 14.6 per cent as at 31 December 2017. There is no change in this ratio through the first quarter of 2018.

The bank's target of a CET1 capital ratio of 15.0 per cent stands firm, and it is assumed and expected that this target will be attained by year-end without special measures being taken.
